The classic Chicken Milanese cutlet is served simply on the plate with a lemon wedge or two as a condiment. In America usually served with salad on top or on the side. The salad is usually dressed with a lemon-based dressing. Always delicious and refreshing.
- 4 chicken breast halves; skinless and boneless
- 3/4 Cup Parmesan; freshly grated
- 2 Tablespoons Parmesan; freshly grated
- 3/4 Cup breadcrumbs; fresh white
- 1 Tablespoon parsley; minced fresh
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper; freshly ground
- 1 egg
- 1/2 Cup milk
- 2 Cups olive oil
- 2 Tablespoons butter; unsalted
- 2 Tablespoons lemon juice; fresh
- 1 lemon; quartered
- parsley springs; fresh
- Flatten chicken breasts between sheets of waxed paper to thickness of 3/8 inch, using a meat mallet or rolling pin. Mix cheese, breadcrumbs, minced parsley, salt and pepper in large bowl.
- Whisk egg with milk in medium bowl to blend. Dip chicken into egg, then into breadcrumb mixture, coating completely and pressing to adhere. Shake off excess breadcrumbs.
- Heat oil in heavy large deep skillet to 375 degrees. Add chicken and cook until golden brown and cooked through, about 4 minutes per side. Using tongs, transfer to paper towels and drain. Transfer chicken to platter.
- Melt butter in small saucepan. Mix in lemon juice and pour over chicken. Garnish with lemon wedges and parsley sprigs.
- We use olive oil for frying, and just enough to cover the bottom of the skillet.
